Brad Hendricks has a family tradition of dedication to the law.
His father was also an attorney in Little Rock, and a former circuit
judge in Pulaski County.
Brad has worked
for many years as a trial attorney almost exclusively handling medical
malpractice cases. His practice focuses on representing children with
cerebral palsy or other birth injuries caused by obstetric or pediatric
malpractice. Several of the cases he has settled or won at trial have
been reported in a number of legal publications.
In 1980, the State
of Arkansas called upon Brad Hendricks to bring the prison system into
compliance with legal standards. The Director of the Arkansas
Department of Correction vested in him the responsibility and authority
to do so. This involved numerous issues in an eleven year lawsuit,
which was successfully concluded in 1982. In 1981, Brad was named
Employee of the Year by the Department of Correction in recognition of
his success in reforming the state's
prisons. He investigated and corrected problems with security,
brutality, racism, inmate discipline, and over one hundred medical,
legal and administrative issues. Brad also served as Assistant Warden
of the penitentiary at Wrightsville, AR.
Brad has served as an expert witness in the federal litigation which challenged conditions of confinement in the state prisons of Oklahoma, and in similar litigation in three separate Arkansas cases involving county jails.
Brad concentrates his practice in the areas of Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, and management of litigation and claims.
